Hello!!! I just had to post to say that I'd seen the first (of hopefully many) sightings of a young great spotted woodpecker. It was being fed breakfast this morning by a very attentive parent :)
Unfortunately by the time I'd come back with my camera, the young one had moved to a different branch and was not so visible, so no photos. Hopefully between Steve and I we will get something!
Later I saw a parent flying back and forth to one of the taller trees where there was a young one. Not sure if these were the same birds or not. There are quite a few woodpecker's that come for the food.
So it's all very exciting at the moment in the garden :)
These are two wonderful photos that Steve took a couple of weeks ago of Mrs P stocking up on fat block to take back to the nest :)
I hope that you see something exciting today in the natural world near you, bye for now, Natasha :)
